Listening assignment

"Mitre Storm" by Jasper McVain. The tune was part of the soundtrack to the Venture Bros. episode "I Know Why The Caged Bird Kills" (probably one of my favorite episodes from that series). The sound is intriguing - reminding me vocally a bit of Grace Slick and Nico channeled through Lisa Gerrard, and the sound has a sort of a latter day gothic quality to it; something fans of Dead Can Dance or late-period Joy Division would dig on, with some shoe-gazing elements thrown in. Dark, seductive, almost becalming.
